Are Swedes Heliophiles?
A heliophile is defined as ‘Any organism that is attracted to large amounts of sunlight’. It’s no sunrise that Swedes love the sun. For most part of the year, the weather is well…tolerable. But Summer is here and this post is dedicated to the ultimate summer sun worshiper.
Beach Trip: Loving Skanör
From the best beach in Sweden, with love Love was in the form of the beautiful resort areas of Falsterbo and Skanör, two small towns located to the southwesternmost tip of Sweden (19.3 miles from Malmö). After a 50 minute trip on the bus (or a 33-minute car ride), you will be amazed by the […]

In my native England, the most prominent football song is probably “Three Lions (Football’s Coming Home)“. Now for me, this is a problem. I have all of a sudden – inexplicably and with no precedent for this – become a huge fan of the World Cup (“VM”, på svenska). And when I think of the […]

It’s that time of year: Sweden and Eurovision
Sweden loves Eurovision. Not only is Sweden exceptionally good at the contest, being the second most successful nation after Ireland, but there is something culturally ingrained which surely explains why Sweden is so prolific in the contest.
